#2 of 56 in Heraklion
Travellers' Choice
In the heart of Heraklion city, Olive Green Hotel stands out with a distinct character. The name consists of two nodal words for the interpretation of its philosophy and personality that lies beyond. The Olive stands as a symbol of power, eternity, tranquility and prosperity. The Olive is embedded in the entity of Crete, through its purity and wildness. On the other side, the color Green represents the ecological and contemporary character of the hotel which implements international sustainability criteria. Olive Green is an intelligent, conscious, eco-friendly hotel, a prototype for citizens and travelers of the world. With modern infrastructures it combines the cutting-edge technology with the glory of Cretan culture while it gives prominence to all these elements that create eternal values. Its Philosophy is inculcated by the logotype which is inspired from the Minoan icons. The spiral, a symbol of birth, continuity and a universal imprint surrounded by olive leaves. Olive Green is a hotel with a very distinctive character of its own. It has cultivated a sui generis style through simplicity and individuality aiming to change the way of living in a city hotel.

Good location, nice front desk person and room layout was okay, but 2 out of the 3 days the room smelled like a sewer plant and a few days after we left we had clustered bites that itched. We suspect it was from the mattresses on the couches that likely contained bed bugs. Our first ever experience with bites like this. We called on day two about the smell and no one addressed the smell. Will not return.

Hotel's Favourite
The hotel is very well located - near restaurants, center of town, shopping, touring...we had a double room and the bath/shower was big, the sink and makeup area sufficient, and beds were comfortable. The hotel is modern and efficient. Breakfast is plentiful and well handled - lots of variety. Staff were friendly and helpful. I would stay here again.

We are on our 3 rd night here and the feelings are mixed.Excellent location for wandering Heraklion. The ‘park’ it faces is actually a square full of restaurant tables so can get noisy in the evening as we found to our cost the first evening. When I asked if we could change rooms I was originally told by an unhelpful male in the front desk that they were full and anyway, this is the room you paid . Big issues with the electrics in room 105! In arrival we were pleased to receive a glass of wine and fruit platter in room as apology for electric issues meaning we needed a door key and some sockets might not work. We then realised we had no light in the toilet and only 1 socket worked. No tv therefore and kettle needed moving to the one working socket.Phone call from lady at front desk on second evening offering a move fir 3rd night if we got luggage ready for first thing. We decided it wasn’t worth the hassle ( light bulb in toilet replaced) and it was quieter. Despite pointing out again early evening that only 1 socket worked and thus no tv available nothing was done about it.No idea if any other rooms are experiencing the same issue - very vague explanations and we still await the technician that was promised. Not sure if I’d stay here again or recommend it on our experience.

Response from Marketing Karatarakis SA, Innkeeper at Olive Green Hotel

Dear dragonhead, thank you for choosing the Olive Green Hotel for your stay. Due to a temporary failure in our automation system, we made sure to install a multi-socket plug in your room prior to your arrival, that assured the unceasing function of all appliances - including the TV & kettle unless unpluged. Pop Classic rooms are all located on the first floor. We regret any inconvenience, despite our soundproof windows and double glazed glasses that assure 90% sound isolation when kept closed. Unfortunately, our hotel was full and could not proceed with room upgrade in another category and hence another floor. Dear dragonhead we will be happy to welcome you back in the future and rectify the inconvenience caused by providing an alternative power supply. Best Regards, Guest Relations Manager

We had just one night in this hotel. Its a good place to discover Heraklion. Very friendly and helpful staff. We booked very shortly a late check out because our flight startet at 9 pm. We were very glad, that we could stay in our room till 6 pm, although the hotel was nearly fully booked. The room was big, with a big balcony and a view to a nice place. The only negative point is, that the breakfast room is souterrain
